Liverpool's 19-year-old right back Trent Alexander-Arnold received a surprise call-up for England as manager Gareth Southgate put his faith in youth with his final 23-man squad for next month's World Cup.However, experienced goalkeeper Joe Hart and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere were both omitted from a squad announced Wednesday via a social media video featuring young recreational players from around the country shouting out the names.The uncapped Alexander-Arnold is the youngest squad member after an amazing breakthrough season with Liverpool, which will culminate in next week's Champions League final against Real Madrid.Left-back Danny Rose was also selected despite playing only 10 Premier League games for Tottenham Hotspur this season.With Hart's international days now apparently over after being his country's senior keeper for the past three tournaments, Everton's Jordan Pickford is expected to start in goal in England's opening match against Tunisia on June 18 .He will be joined by Jack Butland, whose domestic season ended in Premier League relegation with Stoke City, and Burnley's Nick Pope.
